What is R.eaburl.com?

R.eaburl.com – a potentially unwanted program that interrupts users' browsing sessions by redirecting users to unknown domains

R.eaburl.com adware programR.eaburl.com is an adware-related application which can infiltrate web browsers such as Chrome, Edge, Firefox, and Safari.

R.eaburl.com is a potentially unwanted application[1] that can enter your computer system due to a careless installation of freeware and then display aggressive ads while you are browsing the Internet. In addition, some computer users have also warned the Internet community that the R.eaburl.com virus is using links that seem to be from Facebook.[2] However, we can assure you that this domain name has nothing to do with the mentioned companies.

The presence of R.eaburl.com on your browser, however, might indicate an infection of a potentially unwanted program, so its main goal is to produce annoying advertisements that redirect potential victims to sponsored sites. Failing to get rid of the ad-supported application helps it continue its rogue activities. To get rid of annoying ads and other unwanted activities, you will have to detect and terminate the adware app from your computer. Similarly to R.eablink, the cause of R.eaburl.com is a browser-based infection that can be terminated by resetting Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Safari, or another browser.

R.eaburl.com can enter the computer system by using stealth techniques such as bundling or by using deceptive hyperlinks on ad-filled sites. Furthermore, once installed, the potentially unwanted application can start showing the following symptoms:

  • frequent redirects to dubious content;
  • an increased amount of ads;
  • browser changes (e.g. homepage, new tab URL, etc.);
  • slow operation of the browser.

If you have been lately experiencing one or more of these signs, there is a high risk that an adware application has been performing rogue activities on your computer. If you see advertising posts that relate to R.eaburl.com, you can be a hundred percent sure that this is the potentially unwanted program that has been bothering you. To avoid unwanted advertisements in the future, you can employ ad-blocking applications that would prevent specific components from loading (in this case, advertisement banners and similar ads).

Adware apps are distributed via bundling

According to cybersecurity experts from Virusai.lt,[3] adware programs are very likely to enter the computer unnoticed. These PUPs use stealth techniques to trick users into installing them inadvertently. Adware can come in these ways:

  • unprotected websites;
  • secondary downloading sources;
  • with regular freeware.

These distribution sources are the most popular ones among adware developers. If you want to avoid secret installation, make sure you always choose the Custom/Advanced mode while downloading various content from the Internet. Moreover, avoid clicking on suspicious links as a potentially unwanted application can be hidden there. Last but not least, install reliable anti-malware protection to keep the PC system protected 24/7 from various intruders.

Remove R.eaburl.com virus from your computer

To remove R.eaburl.com virus from the computer system, you will need to take some actions on your own or rely on anti-malware programs. If you decide to use the manual technique for adware elimination, note that you need to remove each adware-related browser extension,[4] plug-in, and an add-on from web browsers such as Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer, Microsoft Edge, or Safari.

However, performing the R.eaburl.com removal automatically is a wiser option for a less-experienced user. These programs are capable of successfully and safely removing similar cyber threats. Remember that a vital step in the termination of the PUP is the reset of all installed browsers; otherwise, the unwanted activities might return due to unwanted browser extensions.

How to prevent from getting adware

Stream videos without limitations, no matter where you are

There are multiple parties that could find out almost anything about you by checking your online activity. While this is highly unlikely, advertisers and tech companies are constantly tracking you online. The first step to privacy should be a secure browser that focuses on tracker reduction to a minimum.

Even if you employ a secure browser, you will not be able to access websites that are restricted due to local government laws or other reasons. In other words, you may not be able to stream Disney+ or US-based Netflix in some countries. To bypass these restrictions, you can employ a powerful Private Internet Access VPN, which provides dedicated servers for torrenting and streaming, not slowing you down in the process.

Data backups are important – recover your lost files

Ransomware is one of the biggest threats to personal data. Once it is executed on a machine, it launches a sophisticated encryption algorithm that locks all your files, although it does not destroy them. The most common misconception is that anti-malware software can return files to their previous states. This is not true, however, and data remains locked after the malicious payload is deleted.

While regular data backups are the only secure method to recover your files after a ransomware attack, tools such as Data Recovery Pro can also be effective and restore at least some of your lost data.
